Outeniqua Farmers Market

The Outeniqua Farmers Market

I have been dragged through enough farmers markets in my life to be sick of seeing the standard African curios, hippie tie dies and guinea fowl print knickknacks. This farmers market however would please even a Captonian who is spoilt with hipster farmers markets. It really is worth a visit if you are in the area. It has a beautiful setting and lovely wooden stalls. The stores offer a wide selection of goods from delicious takeaway foods, organic produce, cute gifts, furniture, clothing, antiques and art. One of my favourite stalls is the nursery. Every year I swing by to buy something for my garden and the oomie there is extremely helpful.

They have a nice covered sitting area in the middle of the food stalls with live entertainment so arrive hungry and indulge in some of the yummy food on offer.

My husband is dying to take our little one there one day so that he has an excuse to take part in the fun kiddie activities they have at the market. If you have little ones this is a must visit on your next trip up the Garden Route.

Nursery at Outeniqua Farmers Market
I love this nursery! Such helpful owners and affordable plants.

As you can see it was a miserable, overcast day when I took these photos, but thecrowds still came out to shop.

I of course could not resist ordering myself a waffle. They are a particular weakness of mine.

Kiddie Ride
How cute is this kiddies ride? Doesn’t quite make up for the fact that the actual Outeniqua Choo Choo is no more but it is a step in the right direction.
Market Go Karts
My hubby was dying to try out the go karts! One day when MJ is old enough we’ll have to come back and try them out.
Love Locks
How cute! They have a love locks wall like those you find in Paris.

Just a photo from another day when we went to the market and the weather was not all miserable.
